Dampen the Stop-and-Go Traffic with Connected and Automated Vehicles -- A Deep Reinforcement Learning Approach

17 May 2020Liming JiangYuanchang XieDanjue ChenTienan LiNicholas G. Evans

Stop-and-go traffic poses many challenges to tranportation system, but its formation and mechanism are still under exploration.however, it has been proved that by introducing Connected Automated Vehicles(CAVs) with carefully designed controllers one could dampen the stop-and-go waves in the vehicle fleet. Instead of using analytical model, this study adopts reinforcement learning to control the behavior of CAV and put a single CAV at the 2nd position of a vehicle fleet with the purpose to dampen the speed oscillation from the fleet leader and help following human drivers adopt more smooth driving behavior...
